Clare Russell is a mixed-media artist based in Fife.

As a keen walker and birder, her work is inspired by the landscapes and nature around Scotland.

Working in series, she sketches outside using charcoal, ink or watercolour. Back in the studio she creates mixed-media paintings using layers of acrylic, ink, collage, texture and found objects. In the layering and loose approach, she tries to recreate what it felt like to be there, surrounded by the natural environment.

Clare's paintings can be seen at Frames Gallery, Victoria Street, Perth and at The Quay Gallery in Aberdour.
